The British Tag

I do love a good tag and this one is the best by far! I saw it on my new fave Little Miss Katy‘s blog and thought I would nick it join in! It originated from the very lovely Beautycrush who started it on her vlog.

So, let’s go! Tally-ho! (already, could I be more British?!)

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day and how many sugars?
I drink a shocking amount of green tea. I basically live on it. Normal English Breakfast tea, I drink with one sugar but I don’t have it very often, usually only when I’m out at a friends house. I’m also partial to a Peppermint tea.

2. Favourite part of your roast?
Roast spuds. Or massive Yorkshires:


Or Pigs-in-blankets. I like roasts.

3. Favourite dunking biscuit?
I don’t do dunking. It ruins tea and it ruins biscuits.
My favourite biscuit however, is a chocolate bourbon (sorry Beautycrush!). I could EASILY eat a whole (family size) pack in one go. In fact, I have. Don’t judge me.


4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
Watching Wimbledon whilst eating strawberries & cream and drinking Pimms. #winning

5. Favourite word?
Impossible to limit this to one word! Jerk is quite high up the list, as is Subliminal. And Jive. I do not like Lush.

6. Cockney rhyming slang?
Oh I know a few: Godiva (£5); Butchers (Look); Apples and Pears (Stairs); Dog and Bone (Phone); Cream Crackered (Knackered); Bricks and Mortar (Daughter)…I’m all out.

7. Favourite sweet?
Again, I can’t limit myself. Life is too short for favourites. Especially when you have a tooth as sweet as mine. I love Jelly Tots; the pink and blue bobbly ones from Liquorice Allsorts and Star bars!


8. What would your pub be called?
Um something with our surname, Knight… A Knight Inn/Knights Inn? Is that too jerky?! I just Googled it and turns out it’s not very original. Good job I don’t name pubs for a living. That would be a cool job though. If I was better at it.

9. No.1 British person?
James Bond. Or Phillip Schofield. Or Kevin McCloud. Oh or the voice over man from Come Dine with Me. All men! Interesting.

10. Favourite shop/restaurant?
Hands down this has to be John Lewis! Their Christmas adverts alone win it for me. Apart from the snowman one from  few years ago, that didn’t really do it for me. Last years The Bear and The Hare was pretty tear-jerking.

11. What British song pops into your head?
Aside from the Lily Allen song in that John Lewis advert, the next British song is…Parklife by Blur? Bit random but I like it. Then Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.

12. Marmite?
Love love LOVE it!

I tag anyone and everyone, British or not!
